ABSTRACT
The article reports on the move by leek grower Tim Casey to team up with food waste campaigners to harvest surplus crops and donate to charities in Lincolnshire, England in 2014. They were able to harvest around 1,000 kilograms (kg) of leeks, which will be divided into 12,500 portions. A rising number of farmers are working with the Gleaning Network to save thousands of tonnes of fresh fruit and vegetables that are wasted on British farms each year.
